Solar panels are great for getting power in remote locations, but you always need to find a way to set up the panel once you get there. A great way to do this is with a tripod mount.

A standard camera tripod is lightweight and collapses to a very small size. So it is easy to transport, and also adjustable. You can always get your panel into the optimal position to catch the sunlight. All you have to do is make a simple adapter so that you can mount a solar panel to the tripod.

In this project, I am going to show you how to make a tripod mount for your small solar panels.
